Course description

Report Writing In-house Course – a customisable in-house course

This in-house report-writing course covers the entire report-writing process and best practice for producing effective, well-written reports. As an essential way of presenting our work, it is critical that business reports are written to be informative, readable and engaging. 

This customisable in-house course is designed around each team or company's sector, organisational tone and writing requirements. By learning in small groups and with hands-on exercises, your team will discover how to tailor their writing to their readers, enabling them to create easy-to-read, impactful documents. 

And the learning starts before the course even begins – in the lead-up to the course, each participant has the opportunity to submit a writing sample, helping Emphasis Training to identify areas of improvement and develop a curriculum that will meet those needs. All participants also receive post-course support from the Emphasis Training helpline. 

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suitable for teams and companies who wish to improve their members' writing skills. This course is especially relevant to writing longer documents such as reports, briefings and project plans. This course is highly customisable and delegates of all writing abilities are welcome.

Wendy was really friendly, professional and kept us engaged throughout with lots of opportunities for participating. The structure of the course was easy to understand with time to take short breaks too.
The course was enjoyable, concise and specific – hopefully like our writing now!
